Scott Weiland bassist cleared of drug charges

Black was arrested for drug possession following Weiland's death.

Bloomington Police's Deputy Chief Mike Hartley said that the investigation of Tommy Black was ended after "weighing what it would take to probe the narcotics charges."

He said: "They were found in a bunk, and with several people residing on a bus, a number of people could have potentially possessed those narcotics. So we decided not to pursue charges against him."
